AboveNet eXpressWaveTM Long Haul

Your Choice For Fast, High-Bandwidth, Intercity/Interstate Connectivity

Your Choice For Fast, High-Bandwidth, Intercity/Interstate Connectivity Secure, Low-Latency, Express Networking

What was once viewed as a luxury is now the requirement for cost-effective, high-throughput, scalable networks to support Voice, Video, Data, and Mobility. With site and server consolidation, business continuity and disaster recovery also high on customer lists of what they need now.

When planning your intercity or interstate business applications, whether it’s to cut costs, grow your business or distinguish yourselves from your competition, AboveNet has the proven experience to deliver the benefits of high-speed Gigabit/10Gigabit next-generation technology. Offering you a high performance network designed with less regenerations to provide low latency- while minimizing potential points of failure.

Some of the solutions we can help with:

  • Express routing: point-to-point, dedicated circuits, with no local stops, to your remote locations
  • Securely connect corporate data centre and back up data centre in separate markets
  • Enterprise Business Continuity Applications between Metro's
  • Providing high-bandwidth when consolidation increases distance between mission critical sites

Choices that suit your budget and business needs

We can meet your needs whether you want us to extend our eXpressWave service cost-effectively to your location with a metro unmanaged tail connection or provide a managed metro tail. And, we can use our extensive network access and considerable experience with Data Centers and Carrier Hotels to readily provision your dedicated, point-to-point long haul service to these sites.

Product Description

AboveNet’s eXpressWave service offers true 10Gigbit bandwidth delivered over our long haul network. It connects customers at full 10Gigabit from our Point-Of-Presence (POP) to their enterprise locations in major metros, as compared to Local Exchange Carrier loops where 10Gigabit bandwidth is not guaranteed. We provision the 10, 2.5 or 1 Gigabit low-latency transport and you can control how and when to carve up the transparent, high-bandwidth for your applications.


Cost-effectively connecting your high-bandwidth, point-to-point, remote-city applications.

  • Easy to do business with: we take the complexity out of the process
  • Improved performance and less points-of-failure with our minimum en route regenerations
  • When your business priorities change, your AboveNet network can change with it
  • Avoid more costly, lower throughput, shared LEC local loop
  • Single point of accountability: eliminating finger-pointing
  • Our owned, dedicated metro extensions provide secure fibre transport of your traffic, in its native protocol, to the desired destination


  • Powered by our private, Next-Generation Optical Transport Technology
  • Multi-protocol: express your signal your way
